F. Douglas Brown & Neil Aitken // The Intersection of History & Poetry

  • Artists Milepost 8155 Northeast Oregon Street Portland, OR, 97213 United States (map)

F. Douglas Brown and Neil Aitken will read from their latest books and discuss the ways in which history has informed their respective projects. Brown's latest book, Icon, explores his own relationship to his namesake, 19th century abolitionist, orator, and writer Frederick Douglass.  Aitken's book, Babbage's Dream, draws heavily on the life of 19th century mathematician Charles Babbage.  A short Q&A will follow the reading.
